“C’mere, Feni!” I desperately coax,
My face breaks into a smile,
My dog lazily trudges towards me and
It sure seems to take her a while!!
“That’s it, baby girl,” I happily squeal,
The grimace on her face a fraud,
On the inside, I’m congratulating myself,
Her obedience, I applaud!
I have a lazy dog, ’tis true,
She rarely does obey,
And when she does, my Mom tells us,
“For this EXACTLY I pray!”
Which is why I was thrown aback,
When my dog so eagerly,
Listened to what I had to say,
Obeyed a command from me!
But ALAS! Myjoy was short lived,
When abruptly realise did I,
That Feni walked past me to her food bowl,
Well, at least I tried! ❤
